Christian Heritage School’s varsity girls basketball team broke its seven-game losing streak Tuesday and earned its first Sub-region 6A-A victory with a 51-43 win at Trion.

The Lady Lions (3-17, 1-6) led at the end of each quarter — 18-6, 30-17 and 42-27 — thanks to one of their best offensive efforts of the season.

“We shot the ball well,” Christian Heritage coach Heather Lowery said. “We made six (3-pointers) in the first half. That gave us a lot of confidence.”
